is john boehner and barack obama, and we have a story posted right now that says this barack obama didn't once mention the word race. he said he wants the wealthy to pay more. so if the president says he wants the wealthy to pay more, that means he could keep the rates the name. john boehner said he want no higher tax rates, so they aren't so far apart, but liberals will not be happy if that's the case. >> jennifer: well, unless though, if the president is able to orchestrate a way where they would generate just as much revenue in removing those deductions and loopholes from the wealthy, as they would from seeing the rates go up, what is the difference? >> i'm not denying that. but letting the top two rates expire brings in about $960 billion over ten years. that's a lot of money. that's almost enough to turn off the automatic spending cuts plus in place. i don't know that putting a cap on deductions or loopholes, i'm not sure that is going to bring in a trillion dollars. i would say the likelihood is not enough. but that's something the congressional budget office

. president obama doesn't have a lot of time to bask in his electoral victory. the fight for the middle class starts right now in congress. the confetti was still on the floor after the celebration in chicago, and house speaker john boehner was already hinting at another major fight in congress over taxes and spending. >> in order to garner republican support for new revenues, the president must be willing to reduce spending and shore up entitlement programs that are the primary drivers. mr. president, this is your moment. we're ready to be led, not as democrats or republicans, but as americans. >> president obama will make a statement tomorrow in the east room. the automatic spending cuts and tax hikes kicked in january 1st if washington can't reach a deal. a lot of people fear it's going to be a repeat of what happened in 2011 when the republicans 4e8d the debt ceiling hostage to get what they wanted. but thing, i guess, you could say are a bit different. we are two days removed from a landslide victory, as well as a new 55-45 democratic senate majority. the president is also the winner of

[video clip] >> the republican national chairman, mitch mcconnell, john boehner, and other republican leaders behind the epic election failure of 2012 should be replaced with leaders more in tune with the conservative base of the republican party. likewise, established republican consultants establishedkarl rove, romney campaign senior advisers, and pollsters should never be hired to run or consult on a national campaign again. nobody would giv
. and they also saw a real right- wing backlash against president obama that they did not want to contribute to. that was racist as well. you know, the birth or movement, you cannot be from here. who wants to back that? now it is four years later and the question is what will president obama do? it is not will he accomplished, but what will his administration allow everyone to accomplish that in 2008, i think people felt they had hit their heads against a brick wall for so long. the wall became a door. the door opened a crack. people wondered if it would swing open or be slammed shut? it is up to force more powerful than the present of the united states. that is people organized around this country. they have an opportunity now. they saw that will about to be put in place which was mitt romney and they opted for something else. they opted for the door. but the question is will they kicked it open? that is the question right now. there are two forces more powerful than the most powerful person on earth. organize people and the actual force of nature. and that is what we experienced in new york t

right now deserves barack obama. four years ago the public could be excused for voting for obama because it was a blank canvas which people could draw whatever pictures they wanted. but not this time. barack obama had a record that we could judge him by and majority of americans barely over 50% looked at that record and decided they wanted more of the same. >> eric: sean puts it well. 50%, more of the same, has conservatives scratching their head. >> greg: look, there is demographics. how many white voters disappeared? where did they go? 12 million. where did they go? the republican party, they have to act like frito lay. you don't just make a bunch of doritos. you have to keep making them. they have to go out and find new people and branch out. again, be confident in the ideas. and go to the new constituencies. >> eric: a lot of people said, leading up to the election, ton-out matters. it turns out, turn-out did matter. what did romney do wrong not getting the turn-out? >> greg: >> they say we should have courted latino voters. the republican party could have -- george bush did more on
the right, to think that this event is part of some grand conspiracy that the obama administration has dreamed up to keep the truth from coming out about benghazi. this is a soldier, a great accomplishment, it's a sad event and at the same time whenever somebody in a national security position like that who has not only access to classified information but who literally sits astride all of our secrets, and someone known to him is trying to get into his computer, obviously you have to resign. >> richard, this is a very sensitive testimony, not only for petraeus or but for the whole question of benghazi. this is a very trouble some spot for this administration. >> the whole benghazi -- the administration has struggled with. they haven't been able to put behind them and just going back to the point that you were just making, there doesn't appear, at this stage, any indication that the investigation into paula broadwell was an investigation that she may have been combing for secrets or anything like that. they said that there's no indication that would lead to that, that it was a spying or
in every case the pollsters had it right. >> you want to look at the contours of the election, were you surprised by the sort of stunning sweep we saw the other night? >> i certainly was, chris. you know, the obama people were very confident and their model -- the way they described what they were going about doing i thought made sense analytically, but they won even the states they thought they were going to win by bigger margins. they thought colorado would be a razor-thin election like florida, and they won by five or six points. they were an incredible machine, and the fact that they were able to get african-american turnout in ohio to go up by 33%, to go from 11% of the electorate to 15%, no one on either side would have thought the obama campaign could do that, and that was the margin of victory for them in ohio. >> how many days before the election did romney know his goose was cooked, that he had to go to pennsylvania and michigan and minnesota? how early did he know he had to go for the long shots, that he was probably going to lose? >> i don't know that he ever thought that, c
are we talking about here? >> a lot of people. >> they came out in droves for him. >> for obama. >> yes. how many legal mexicans were voting? >> right. but i think the woman vote, there is always the gender gap. with the hispanic vote, the republican party seems to be shrinking. that's why people #r* bringing it up. >> how much of them are legal? >> i'm sure 90% kenyans voted for him. >> all mexicans are legal. they might not be american, but they are legal. >> no. they are undocumented. they are missing a piece of paper. >> this may be the most important news of the election. there is a report that in the virginia senate race between tim kaine and george allen, hank the cat is in third place. >> wow. >> with around 6,000 votes. >> i would have voted for him. >> jedediah, if the gop will talk about the future and rebranding, i think feline candidates have to be a part of the discussion. >> have to be, dogs, cats, parrots. we have a bunch of parrots. >> i hope the race doesn't end in a dead heat. >> wow. >> oh man. >> wow. >> not even going to try to come back to that one. >> man behind
't as many white people. >> stephanie: karl rove said it's because obama suppressed the vote. all right. here she is jacki schechner. >> good morning, president obama is going to give a speech on the economy time from the east room of the white house addressing his plans moving forward including how he might avoid the looming fiscal clip. if all of the bush tax expire and the automatic spending cuts kick in, we do face falling into another recession. buddies missing all of the cuts and revenue increases could put us at greater economic risk. there is a new sense of urgency among members of congress to come to some sort of agreement but we have some fundamental obstacles, house speaker john boehner won't accept higher individual tax hikes, and harry reid says asking the wealthy to pay a their fair share is the right thing to do. >> people making all of this money have to contribute a little bit more. >> in case you missed it the president had an emotional moment when he thanked supporters earlier this week. >> you guys have done [ inaudible ] to make sure what i'm
out of the lips of president obama days later. right before president obama put out his feeling that people who came under the age of 16 and those ramifications that he put out there, right before he did that marco rubio had this plan of his own. governor romney had been campaigning in florida with marco rubio and was asked do you agree with what senator rubio was saying on immigration and he hesitated. he said i have got to think about it. i have to wonder if that wasn't a moment that might have changed the course of a lot of things. >> it could be. i think one of the realities here and mary catherine was touching on this. i think you will see core constituencies rush to people like marco rubio and say tell us how you would do this. i think it raises rubio's stature within the party. you have to look at the business community and people in the high-tech sector and wall street who want immigration reform to get the best brains into the country and are willing to make concessions if you tell them we can get the best people here. >> the system is a mess and horribly complex just a

other people say it for you. right now, president obama's game is not to come out of the box, acting takeda, and give republicans -- acting cocky and giving republicans an idea -- a reason to want to stick it to him. he is saying let's get this done. that is what he is serious about, there is no reason to set yourself up as having more leverage than you do. host: margaret talev, and the go to this headline in bloomberg. what does he do on his health care law, if anything? guest: so, it really is a little bit of the congress, and this will play out in fiscal cliff and debt reduction negotiations, but a lot of this is in the hands of the states and whether they want to engage on the medicare front and in setting up their own exchanges. this will play out fairly quickly in the coming weeks. the notion of a repeal effort of what mitt romney pledged is gone now. there will be tinkering around the edges and governors making decisions pitted the individual state will have a lot to do with how the state receives it. host: scott wilson, "the washington post," your colleague, "jobs will be the
